My wonderful Aunt was in town, and since my 21st (legal age for alcohol possession in the US) birthday was a couple of weeks ago, she bought some beer for me. So I now have several to try, and I'll be blogging about what I've discovered.

Initial Inventory

  • Sam Adams Blackberry Witbier x6
  • Sam Adams Boston Lager x1
  • Blue Moon Summer Ale x2
  • Ellicotville Blueberry Wheat Beer x2
  • Ithaca Nut Brown x1
  • Saranac Adirondack Lager x1

Tonight I had a friend over for dinner, and we each had a Blackberry Witbier. The blackberry flavor was there, but barely detectable. The beer overall was slightly bitter but very enjoyable.

I'll continue to post my brief thoughts on the beers as I try them. Next up is most likely the Summer Ale.
